Ward, John M(ilton)

(b Oakland, CA, 6 July 1917). American musicologist. He studied with Gombosi at the University of Washington (MM 1942), with Herzog at Columbia University (1945–6) and with Sachs and Reese at New York University (PhD 1953, with a dissertation on the vihuela de mano). From 1947 to 1953 he was an instructor at Michigan State University and from 1953 to 1955 an assistant and then an associate professor at the University of Illinois. In 1955 he joined the faculty of Harvard University, where he was William Powell Mason Professor of Music from 1961 to 1985. His special interests are in 16th-century instrumental music, especially that of Spain and England, Elizabethan music in general, and English popular and folk music from the 16th century to the present day. He has published the results of his research in a series of painstaking articles that are models of careful bibliographical technique, but his greatest impact on American musicology has been his influence on several generations of Harvard students, to whom he has taught sound musicological method, a healthy respect for accuracy, the importance of constructing well-reasoned arguments and the ideal of complete bibliographical control. He is the general editor of the Pantomime, Ballet and Social Dance group of the series Music for London Entertainment (London, 1990–).
